  • Cool nights initiate bloom for holiday cacti

    It looks like we are in a cool weather pattern which got me thinking about some of my orchids and holiday cacti.  
    When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes; we can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.  
    Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bud set through managing day length and nighttime temperatures.
